Event description

Description

During the 2018 International Sourcing Expo, Australian Fashion Council (AFC) and Phillips Ormonde Fitzpatrick bring you a workshop focused on "IP for emerging fashion brands - from import to export, what you need to know in today’s global fashion market".


What is it about?

Many exporters and importers don’t realise the importance of Intellectual Property (IP) until it’s too late. But IP is crucial to most textile and fashion businesses’.

This workshop will focus on the why, what, where and how to protect and enforce your IP including a discussion about trade marks, copyright and anti-counterfeiting measures.


Learn about:

  • Why an IP strategy is crucial to your business;
  • What types of IP are relevant to your business;
  • Where you should protect your IP;
  • How to decrease the risk of infringing someone’s IP and how to enforce your rights including working with Customs to stop counterfeiting.
